Apple (AAPL) could begin migrating its app processor manufacturing from Samsung (SSNLF.PK) to TSMC (TSM) sooner rather than later: Taiwan's Commercial Times reports TSMC has been contracted to make Apple's A6X processor, which goes into the 4th-gen iPad, with trial production beginning in Q1. If the report is accurate, there's a good chance the next-gen iPhone and iPad will also rely on TSMC-built processors. (Bernstein) (new TSMC plant)
